So much nice yellow - can't wait until my set arrives :)
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But thatís incorrect. Itís in HHKBís slogan, but when Americaís cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

Silly question time: the honeycomb key that goes in the Windows key position - is it possible to buy these separately?

I had added a couple of extra ducks and bees to my order for my 7yo daughter, and she decided she had to have one of those honeycomb keys, but I didn't want to break the symmetry of my set.

i'd like to get several pieces of those as well if available!

What say you, KeyPop - is it possible to buy a few of the key circled in this pic?

The Tsangan kit contains 1.5x modifiers, but if possible I'd like to buy 4 of these in 1.25x size.

I'll ask Melissa if there are any left over for purchase :3
I believe I may have 1 or 2 extra. I'll definitely let you know!

Bringing a thread back from the past..

I just received my bumblebee key set, and really love it!!.

I wanted more duckys to complement this set, but within the days of receiving my set, when I was then ready to order again, the yellow ducks went out of stock... I was sad. Not long after, they came back!! so I went right ahead to get me some more, but the numerpad set I wanted to order along with it went out of stock that day too.

I was wondering if the number pads are out of stock well and truly, or if they might make a short magical comeback for a little while, enough for me to get another set. I would expect however that round two is probably not happeningÖ

I would absolutely buy this set if the numpads were available.  I don't understand this tkl trend.  Being able to enter numbers quickly is more important to me that how many inches away my mouse is.
